The White House announced Saturday that President Barack Obama has chosen St. Charles High School as the backdrop for his speech next Wednesday on health care. The afternoon address will be by invitation only, and not open to the general public, his staff said in a release…
…After the St. Charles speech, the president is to head to downtown St. Louis for a campaign fund-raising event Wednesday night to raise money for U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
While in Hannibal for Democrat Days, McCaskill told reporters that she expects — and will urge — that much of the DSCC money raised Wednesday be used to help Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, the best-known Democrat running for the U.S. Senate.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said Saturday that he expects to join Obama at some point during Wednesday’s visit.
St. Charles High School is located at 725 North Kingshighway Street, St Charles, MO 63301-1797.
The McCaskill/Obama fundraiser will be held at the Renaissance Grand Hotel. More info:
